Can you believe it? Better Call Saul is over. Finished. Done. But damn, what a perfect ride it was.

Back when the spin-off and prequel to Breaking Bad was announced it was met with a degree of scepticism. While many were happy to be diving back into the same universe, some felt concerned that it would amount to nothing more than a cash grab.

Now that it’s over it’s obvious that Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould weren’t at all concerned with hanging on the coattails of the predecessor. It’s destined to go down as a spectacular achievement in TV history, removed enough from Breaking Bad to stand firmly on its own two feet.

That being said, the series finale – season 6 episode 13, Saul Gone – offered fans a rather intense reunion with Heisenberg. But when does Better Call Saul’s Walter White finale scene take place in Breaking Bad?

Better Call Saul’s Walter White finale scene

The flashback scene with Saul and Walter in the series finale takes place during the events of the penultimate episode of Breaking Bad, season 5, episode 15.

It was titled Granite State and shows the contrast between the moment Saul first encountered Walt, as illustrated in the flashback sequence in Better Call Saul season 6 episode 11.

Jumping forward to Saul Gone, Gene is captured hiding in a dumpster in a quick attempt to evade the authorities. He is subsequently arrested and left waiting for his trial. This is when we get the flashback with him and Heisenberg.

The pair are hiding out after the death of Hank Schrader and their unmasking. They’re now America’s most wanted criminals and have no choice but to lay low, forced into one another’s company inside a bunker.

It’s essentially a waiting room, with Saul setting his sight on going to Nebraska while Walt has eyes on New Hampshire.

Watching Breaking Bad, fans were never really given an insight into the many potential conversations the pair had. Fortunately, we now have a glimpse of one exchange, in which Saul asks Walt what he would do with a time machine; what would he change?

He admits that he regrets leaving the Gray Matter Technologies company that plays an important role in Breaking Bad. However, the scene concludes with Walt making a curious revelation, in which he essentially argues that Saul has “always been like this”, implying that he himself was once a good man.

Are there plans for another Breaking Bad spin-off?

No, co-creator Peter Gould recently sat for an interview with Deadline and was asked about the potential for Kim to be walking into a spin-off of her own in those final moments of Better Call Saul.

“I think I would be really interested seeing what happens to Kim,” he explained. “But right now, we have no plans in that direction.”

With the finale tying up so much across both Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad, it’s safe to say that fans will feel satisfied regardless.

‘We were asked to keep it a secret forever’

Although Bryan and Aaron Paul’s cameos were announced ahead of time, the Heisenberg actor told the Albuquerque Journal that it was a secret for a long time:

“We were asked to keep it a secret forever. We were flown in under the darkness of night. We took this plane and they went to a certain private section of the airport there. And then we took like two steps out of the tarmac and into an SUV.”

He added: “They move us to an Airbnb – a duplex. He had the top floor. I had the bottom floor and we were told you can’t leave.”
